Dear Learning Community,
We have updated our Course Program in 2019! New to the program are Human-Centered Design: Building and Testing Prototypes (starting on August 28, 2019) and Data Engineering und Data Science – Klarheit in den Schlagwort-Dschungel (starting on October 23, 2019 in German). You can register for these courses starting now!
In March, the first MOOC looks at the subject of "Patentrecht: So schützen Sie Ihre Innovation" (starting on March 6, 2019 in German). In this two-week workshop, lawyers Dr. Czychowski and Dr. Valvoda illustrate who is typically the owner of a software development, which parallels exist between patents and open source, and how you can protect your creative idea.

Don't miss the following events next week:
On February 20, the two-week workshop "Digitale Identitäten - Wer bin ich im Netz?" is starting (in German). We all want to defend ourselves from identity theft, but how? In this free online course, Prof. Meinel leads you on your way to safe password storage. Your confirmation of participation enables you together with the other two confirmations of participation in the courses "Datensicherheit im Netz" and "Blockchain - Sicherheit auch ohne Trust Center" (both in German), which you can still attain, to take the exam "Cybersecurity Basics" in May. Thereby you can earn a Record of Achievement or qualified certificate, which is normally only possible in six-week courses.
Interested? Then please enroll in the course here: https://open.hpi.de/courses/identities2019
Educational Innovation at the Didacta
Whoever doesn't feel that conventional educational institutions have prepared them adequately for digitalization, will find more and more customized online courses on the Internet, which are even available free of charge. This is the focus of the Potsdam Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) at the educational fair Didacta 2019, which will take place from February 19 to February 23 in Cologne. Besides openHPI, in hall 6.1 (booth C050 D051) the institute presents its mobile recording system tele-TASK and another educational innovation, which will be made ready for the use at HPI: the HPI Schul-Cloud. With the HPI Schul-Cloud, pupils, teachers and parents gain easy access to learning and teaching materials, which are available everywhere and anytime. The solution will provide the technical basis for using recent digital teaching and learning content in every subject - as simple as apps are usable via smartphones or tablet PCs.
Current Episodes of the HPI Podcast (in German)
Have you already listened to the HPI Knowledge Podcast? Most recently it dealt with one of the most requested jobs in the digital era - Data Scientists - and digital health ("Siri, ist mein Blutdruck normal?"). The fourth episode will be published in a few days.
We hope that these topics are of interest to you.
Best regards The openHPI Team
